. in an interview with julianna goldman of bloomberg news obama called the boehner plan quote out of balance. >> i think that we have the potential of getting a deal done, but it's going to require what i talked about during the campaign which is a balanced responsible approach to deficit reduction that can help give businesses certainty and make sure that the country grows. and unfortunately the speaker's proposal right now is still out of balance. he talks for example about $800 billion worth of revenues but he says he's going to do that by lowering rates. when you look at the math, it doesn't work. >> rose: and here is the president talking about why it's essential for him that there be tax increases for the most wealthy among us. >> i don't think that the issue right now has to do with sitting in a room. the issue right now that's relevant is the acknowledgment that if we're going to raise revenues that are sufficient to balance with the very tough cuts that we've already made and further reforms and entitlements that i'm prepared to make, that we're going to have to see the rate

these weapons on their own people. do they now -- go ahead. >> that's right and president obama in august clearly delineated those red lines that if they were to move these out of their storage site or to employ them against the syrian people or anyone else that would be a trigger point for some type of western action. now, depending -- the pentagon has drawn up preliminary plans to send as many as 75,000 troops into syria to secure these chemical weapons sites, but as of just today there have been no signs that any of those forces have been put on alert or there was any detail planning to do this. so there was some question here of whether assad may be calling t president's bluff. >> rose: and what exactly do you think they would be prepared to do and what would trigger that? clearly the movement of them. but it is more or less than that? >> well, u.s. intelligence officials were watching very closely the movement of syrian forces and in also trying to divine the intentions of president assad. clearly the rebels in syria have had a very good few -- past few weeks and making advanc

their rank and file. i think obama has gone pretty far. >> rose: you do? >> i do. >> rose: but has he laid out where the spending cuts will be so bayne kerr take that back to his members and say this is what i got in exchange for rates? >> what he has laid out ses's willing to do the so-called cost-of-living index which he is a big deal. it's $150 billion over the next ten years, $900 billion for the ten years after that it's a big deal. and he's also clearly indicated he's willing to do means testing for medicare recipients. bad news for you and me but it's good for the country and good for the budget. so i think that is-- there is real movement there. he's actually laid out more specifics than boehner has. >> really. >> i was talking to some negotiating experts this week as i was work on a story about the relationship between the speaker and the president. and they say that in an effective negotiation the person with the leverage needs to let the other party save face. and in this situation, the president does hold the cards. he has the leverage and by giving the concessions on medi
